Escape quote in extra args Edited

Hi folks,

I'm trying to use the parameter --rsync-path='sudo rsync' in the EXTRA_ARGS field. But I get caught with strange escapings. I tried escaping the single quote with '' (two single quotes). I tried double quotes within the single quoted string. Nothing works. What's wrong?


 - pipe: atlassian/rsync-deploy:0.2.0
USER: 'bitbucket'
REMOTE_PATH: '/var/www/public/sandbox'
DEBUG: 'true'
EXTRA_ARGS: '-rzhv --delete --stats --rsync-path="sudo rsync" --exclude=/sandbox/ --exclude=/sandbox2/ --exclude=/test/ --exclude=/vanilla/ --exclude=/var/ --exclude=/web/ --exclude=/files/ --exclude=/media/ --exclude=/config.php --exclude=*.dist --exclude=/.git/ --exclude=/.bitbucket/'

 Ends in

+ run rsync -rp --delete-after -rzhv --delete --stats '--rsync-path="sudo' 'rsync"' --exclude=/sandbox/ --exclude=/sandbox2/ --exclude=/test/ --exclude=/vanilla/ --exclude=/var/ --exclude=/web/ --exclude=/files/ --exclude=/media/ --exclude=/config.php '--exclude=*.dist' --exclude=/.git/ --exclude=/.bitbucket/ .

Hi @Arne Becker . The problem is that pipe treats the command as a list of separate tokens, so 

'--rsync-path="sudo' 'rsync"'

becomes two separate strings. We'll try to figure out how to avoid this problem.

That would be great. I'll try the vanilla rsync command, meanwhile.

@Alexander Zhukov Did you figure it out? This is not answered


@Alexander Zhukov  we are facing the same issue. Any updates on this issue?

image: atlassian/default-image:latest
name'Deployment to dev'          
rsync -rp --verbose --delete-after --rsync-path='sudo rsync' $BITBUCKET_CLONE_DIR/ ${USER}@${REMOTE_SERVER}:${REMOTE_PATH}

 @Roman_Szymański that's working for me.
